The Saint Louis Blues are heading into Chicago to face the Blackhawks after recently dominating and crushing the Pittsburgh Penguins. The game against the Penguins was not even that difficult of a game for the Blues as the Blues jumped out early in the game and never looked back. The win allowed the Blues to extend their lead over Colorado to 6 points as the Blues have posted a 17-5-6 record on the year.
On the year the Blues offense has not been the driving force of the wins with only 3 goals a game. Instead, it has been the defense that is giving up only 2.59 goals a game. The Blues have converted on the power play to a clip of 23.8% and have ended up killing off 83.3% of the penalties the Blues have faced on the season.
Chicago has slipped back to the basement in the Central after losing a couple of games in a row. The Blackhawks lost the last game out to the Colorado Avalanche in an embarrassing 7-3 loss. The loss dropped the Blackhawks below the five hundred mark to 10-11-5 on the season so far.
The Blackhawks offense is getting 2.84 goals a game, which is not that bad.

The Blackhawks power play conversion has not been that great either converting at only 13.5% on the year.
